Olivetti Lettera 32, 1963 – Sarah Stewart

£245.00

“Olivetti Letter 32, 1963” is a beautifully executed silkscreen print by printmaker Sarah Stewart. The print is created entirely by a poem about typewriters, written by the artist, with the different coloured letters outlining the form of the typewriter itself. This print has been hand drawn and hand pulled on a screen printing press in Sarah’s home studio. It contains 11 layers of print. With careful consideration of environmental ethics Sarah uses a waterbased system in the creation of her prints. Each print is individually signed and editioned by the artist. Due to the handmade nature of the printing process every print has slight variations making each unique.

Description

About the Artist

A designer and printmaker based in Wigtown, SW Scotland, Sarah Stewart’s work is inspired by patterns and typography found within my environment and found objects. It embraces the past, thrown away and pre-loved and seeks to create something fresh and contemporary from these.

Sarah especially enjoys trawling through her local vintage shops looking for ephemera, once someone else’s treasure, to inspire. Sarah intends to invoke in the viewer a feeling of sentimentality and fondness for the past.
